Whatever I said, I stand behind it....Romney

Mitt Romney’s campaign is apparently worried about being associated with a Republican proposal, first reported by the New York Times today, to run $10 million worth of racially-tinged ads attacking President Obama for his connection to Reverend Jerimiah Wright. Despite criticizing Obama for “listening to reverend Wright” in an interview on Sean Hannity’s radio show in February, the presumed GOP nominee twice slammed the proposal today, after his campaign manager did the same earlier.

At a press conference in Florida today, Romney repeated that he “repudiated” the Wright attack. But when asked about his comments on Hannity’s show, Romney said he stood by them, even though he said he couldn’t remember them:

ROMNEY: I’m actually gonna — I’m not familiar precisely with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said, whatever it was. I’ll go back and take a look at what was said there.

1. "I'll stand behind it, in front of it, and on both sides of it."


"I’m not familiar precisely with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said, whatever it was. "

2. "whatever it was"


You have to think about that to get the full blast.

He is saying that he has changed positions so many times that regardless of what he said before he is comfortable that he can find a way to back it up.

Not ready for prime time.

3. His handlers can limit the media's freedom to speak to Romney, but they can't

speak for him at news conferences & off-the-cuff situations. What's next, duct tape?


Thanks for the video, MindMover.
